Stock up on food and supplies.

Make sure your shovels are ready. A blizzard will be making its way to the tri-state area and the rest of the Northeast region and you better make sure you are prepared.

There was a lot of speculation that the Northeast will be gearing up for the worst winter blast this weekend. There were reports that New York will be hardly hit and news reporters encouraged people to stay indoors. While Washington D.C., North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland were the hardest hit with snow totals of 10 to 18 inches.It seemed as if Armageddon was approaching and people were warned to stay away from the outdoors and bundle up inside.

While this storm may have made its way to certain parts  of the nation, other places like the Westchester county of New York  were unscathed by this storm.

Agatha Prosper, a resident in Yonkers, said that “they made such a big deal on the news telling people to watch out for the biggest snow storm of 2010 and then Saturday comes with not even an inch of snow.”

The news instilled such fear in people that many residents changed their plans for this weekend despite the anticipation of the SuperBowl weekend.

Ricardo Cabanas, a fan of the NFL and resident of the Bronx, said he had to cancel his Super Bowl party because the media made it seem like it was the biggest storm of the year.

“The meteorologists are always wrong in predicting the weather. I knew I shouldn’t have listened to them,” he said.

Rain or snow, other people like Kisha Shillingford did not change her weekend plans.

“I could understand if it was a hurricane coming through but no snow is going to ruin my weekend plans,” she said.
